A little bit of the funny side of food writing:

Ordering Pizza Online is When you Let your Freak Flag Fly, Hillary Pollack, via Munchies.

So you Want to Write a Food Blog, Julia Edelman, via The New Yorker.

Remember, you never want to confuse your readers. I find it helpful to always provide a photo of each individual ingredient, in case your fans forget what food looks like, as well as a candid photo of a baby (it doesn’t have to be yours) in a bathtub full of chia seeds. Isn’t he adorable?

Pro Tip: Babies and chia seeds do not mix.

27 Food Stories Nobody Needs to Write Again, via Eater.

27. Here’s something another culture has been eating for ages but I’m going to say I discovered it

I’m guilty of the this one myself, but mine is more of ‘There’s this ethnic food I’ve been eating forever and you’ve just discovered. And you’re eating it ALL wrong!’

Ultrafast Avocado Soup, Mark Bittman, via New York Times

Avocado milk soup.
